Dog bites woman to death in Ondo
A 55-year-old woman, identified as Florence Aladenoye, has been reportedly attacked and bitten to death by a dog in Idanre, headquarters of Idanre Local Government Area of Ondo State.
It was gathered that after the dog's attack, the victim was rushed to the Federal Medical Center (FMC), Owo where all attempts made by the medical personnel to save her life failed as she died in the hospital.
A source explained that the deceased died as a result of the injuries she sustained due to the dog-bites.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the state Police Command, Mr. Wole Ogodo, the woman was taken to five different hospitals in the town before she finally gave up the ghost last week.
Ogodo said the owner of the dog, one Mr. Olofingbasote Afolabi, had been arrested in connection with the incident and had been detained at the Criminal Investigation (CID) Department of the police command for further investigation.
The PPRO stated: “When the incident happened, the matter was reported to Afolabi, being the owner for the dog, but he did not take any action to treat the victim. So, the victim was taken to five different hospitals, including the FMC in Owo, and the owner of the dog still did not take any action until the victim died.”
